I'm trying to make the playing pieces to abstract game Djambi. I've found some 29mm x 15mm black discs that I want to sticker with an image. I've got some jpg images I'd like to use. The problem is, they are for square tiles.

Basically I need help turning these square counters into 25mm circles for the discs I have.

Assuming you intend to use sheets of adhesive stickers you'd be better off leaving the tiles in the document square and centering them individually to match the grid on your adhesive sheet. When you peel the sticker off it will be round, the excess portion of the square tile that remains on the sticker sheet is your "bleed", protection against the poor positioning accuracy in consumer grade printers that could be as bad as +/- 2mm.

If you intend to cut them by hand, I suggest you keep them square too, in order to have some bleeding and you print a bunch of circles on the back side of your sheet to guide your cut.

BGG is for making friends, not money!

My first thought too was it'd be better to leave them square for bleed, but I think I'd rather they be a little smaller than the disc so they don't get "edge peel" But it's going to be a matter of experimentation with printer settings to see how much shrink he wants. So I did it this way.
